MHKDesigns: November Challenge


Hi, friends! I'm here to share some cards I made using the inspiration from this month's challenge at MHKDesigns! It's November, so that means it's the last challenge of the year so that our team can have a holiday break! I do hope you'll come and play along! Take a peek at this month's inspiration...


I am in love with the sweet vintage images in this inspiration AND the holly theme! I decided to make another card trio using the same layout in different color schemes. Here is the set...


I colored this image digitally in Photoshop. The original color scheme was a cheery traditional bright red and green like in the photo inspiration! I used the Deck the Halls set and paper from the Stars & Stripes paper pack for this CAS offering...


Next up I softened the colors and used papers from the Simply Seasonal paper pack. I just love that you can use so many different papers with the same layout to get a completely new feel!


Last but not least, I went for a nontraditional pink and green! I love the vintage feel of this card--I used distressed papers from the Fully Feathered paper pack for this one!


A sprinkling of rhinestones and black matting finished off this set! I think they will mail easily and pack a festive BANG when opened! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thanks for stopping by, friends! Come join in the fun on the MHKDesigns blog for your chance to win some digi goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

MHKDesigns: Witching You a Happy Halloween!


Hello, all! Happy Halloween! It's my first Halloween as a teacher, so I'm not quite sure what will happen, but my goal is to keep it as calm as possible. I'll let you know how that goes. ;) Anyway, today's post is all about Halloween and a digital print I made using digis from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  Take a peek...


This print measures 8" x 10". I used Photoshop to create my gradient background, added some texture with a variety of brushes and styles, then added my sentiment and image, both from the Flight By Night digital stamp set. I just LOVE how versatile digital products are and how quick it is to create something fun and fabulous that you can print and use! Hop over to the MHKDesigns blog to get a FREE non-watermarked version of this print for your own personal use! :)

That's all I have for you today, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by! I always love to hear from you, so please do let me know your thoughts in the comments below! Don't forget to head over to the MHKDesigns blog for more inspiration and join in our *NEW* challenge tomorrow for your chance at winning some digital goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!
